3:03 pm
of other people there must have been a great sense of excitement when liftoff finally happened. amazing it was an absolutely amazing sense of excitement here the planetarium. for it was in the baikonur cosmodrome but we you know it was absolutely palpable to use our cliche here lots of kids here lots of adults people from all sectors of society as i could sort of pick out you know real enthusiasm and about the whole launch and what's coming in the next couple of months now with i was on a mission and actually right now of course is an out of here crop aeration is engineer with a dear law center to tell me what was it like if you you followed this mission this long for some time now so how would you feel like you've launched as well kind of i do yes so you support it. since a few years so it always starts a crew support support when they're assigned to mission the action out and then restart preparing and throughout the mission and post flight so. you get to know
3:04 pm
him quite well and then issues like i have launched as i was kind of nervous sitting there that everything was to go really well for alex i mean that almost sounds like it's a bit of you know like a personal system but it's a bit more detail you know you're you're really looking after the well the well being of the astronauts aren't you that's correct so it sounds like a person or senses but read you compared to mission for him so it's kind of for example. compared to food because it's kind of important to them to have something from their home with them that remembers reminds them where they're from and so on so this is quite a lot of work before and then when they launch we'll go there with them as well and their family because it's been. a week full of. excitement and mission so it's really exciting for the family and for the. food come on could you give us the secret recipe the secret meals but isn't there. a chance.
3:05 pm

3:06 pm
there are six paramount. anything and we look at it ok what i understand to procedure isn't really clear to me because if it's not to me maybe it's the same questions as i do so we go to the trainers or we look at their hardware and say ok i'm going to try the procedure myself and see where i have troubles and then. the trainers before i go in consul and we look for things with those results as i was a mover thank you very much and reserve banks in the studio if you could talking about eating an alexander guest seems to care about what he eats because he's been tweeting what he had to eat just before he went off the job and it was a russian dish ulk sure. enough about his eating habits but to tell what. he is above you know there's been a lot of buzz about the fact that alexander guest is on this mission is going to take over as commander in a few months from now how important is that for germany and for european space
3:07 pm
exploration. i think it is. very important to have a german not to have a german as a commodity i assessed but it is very fact that it is important for jews for germany that he happens to be german expert about why it is a very prestigious roles a very important role i mean you know a command will go about his business and let's not forget there are also female commanders peggy whitson being one in the past that i can think of right now but the role is if they do this stuff but it's when things happen when somebody has to take control on the i assess that you have somebody actually there in space who can help sort out and communicate directly with ground control because a mission like this is always controlled from the ground you do need to have somebody on the i assess who is a commander who can deal with the other members of the team in a more direct fashion so it is it's like it's important because it is just important for a mission to have a commander but it is a very prestigious role because they are being so few say from europe but also from
